If you expect to analyze the logs specifically for postgresql, use log
to file and set redirect_stderr (this is the default by the MSI
installer). This will create files in the pg_log directory.
If you want to integrate with existing log analyzers etc for windows,
set it for eventlog. This is harder if you want to do a specific
analyzer, but it'll integrate nicely with pre-existing stuff.
